Many thanks for your effort to keep scribus aqua up-to-date.
This newer version surely feels better than the previous one. However I 
still find scribus-aqua so slow. From loading simple text sla documents 
to creating boxes and dragging things around - everything visibly lags. 
I know this is to be considered beta software for now, but I feel kind 
of disappointed at Scribus-aqua speed on my Dual 2 GHz G5 workstation.
You mentioned "another patch which came up only after the 1.3.1 release 
that is a clean-up to eventhandling by MrB which enhances speed 
drastically." Could you release another bundle including this patch?

At this point, my doubt is: can we really expect scribus aqua to reach 
the same performance it has on Linux? Is this speed issue only a problem 
with the current stage of development or with QT apps running natively 
on Aqua?

Don't get me wrong. I really am a supporter of OSS and I look forward to 
the time when I can switch to scribus for all my DTP needs. I'm just a 
little anxious to see things happen.

best regards,
